The Abstract Paintings of Gregory DeaneAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Contemporary abstract art pieces capture the viewer’s attention for a number of reasons. They tend to lure the viewer in with bold colors, geometric shapes, and the promise of a deeper meaning. The powerful impact of Gregory Deane’s paintings, in particular, can stay with the viewer for a lifetime.
Artists wield their brushes and, premeditatedly or not, dream up pieces that often tell a story. This impact is the end product of artists’ visions, their interpretive abilities, and their mastery of depth and color. It takes a keen eye to know where to go with a piece, to not overwork it, and to simply be able to recognize the finishing point when the work is complete.
Gregory Deane’s contemporary abstract paintings are collected internationally and strike an emotional chord with clients. He layers texture and color to create diverse, riveting works that appear in a multitude of sizes and shapes, framed or wrapped. A wrapped canvas is stretched and tacked to the back inside of stretcher bars, allowing the artist to continue painting on and around the sides – providing a natural, painted frame.
Gregory Deane’s Palo Alto Studio and Gallery is open by appointment. For more information, visit his website.
